Orientation and navigation can be a challenging task in the built environment. This is particularly the case in large-scale public buildings such as hospitals, conference centers, train stations or airports.

As such, understanding how environmental features as well as individual spatial abilities shape orientation and movement can help architects improve the usability and user experience of their building designs.
